The lovely Celina asked me for a hair tutorial for something that could be worn to a wedding. It needed to be cute but not bride-thunder-stealing-cute XD
I’ve been really enjoying casual looks with plaits and braids lately so I figured I would incorporate that into the style again ^_^
This is the finished product, a plaited headband with a plaited heart and flower!
What you need:
- Hair Spray
- Clip to hold other hair out of the way.
Start with clean hair and brush out any knots.
Using your finger or a pin start sectioning a piece of hair starting from the top of your ear and moving backwards.
Clip it up and out of the way:
Underneath that and just behind the ear take a small section of hair:
Plait that section ^_^
Use a pin or a hair tie to keep it from coming loose for the moment.
Now on the other side of your head take a section near the top and pin it out of the way:
Plait another section under that and secure the end ^_^
Now with the first plait you made pull it over the top of your head like so:
Pin it on place like this:
Using the second plait make a loop:
Continue with the loop so it turns into a figure 8. Here you can either make it really tight so it looks like a bow or looser so it looks like a heart when it’s finished:
Pin it in place and cover the pins using a flower or another decoration:
Now you can unclip all of the sections you pulled back and fluff them up. You should have something like this:
From one side:
And the other:
From here you could curl the rest of your hair for a more dressy look or leave it straight or wavy ^_^
Depending on what else you’re wearing at the time this can either be a really dressed up style or nice and casual!
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, lots more to come ^_^
